UNICEF denounces that Gaza is already a ‘children’s cemetery’

“All children are likely to be traumatized because they have experienced something that no child should have to experience,” concluded Adele Jodr, UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa. “Every time there is an attack there are dead children,” he added.

The Regional Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for the Middle East and North Africa, Adele Jodrhas warned that the conflict in the Gaza Strip has become a ‘war on children’ and denounced that the area is already a ‘children’s cemetery’.

‘Probably all children will be traumatized because they have experienced something that no child should have to experience,” Jodr emphasized this Monday during a event held in Tokyo (Japan) and picked up by Japanese public television NHK.

Jodr has emphasized that “every time there is an attack, children are killed because Gaza has a very young population, concentrated in a very small area.”

The head of UNICEF has reminded that there are 37,000 children suffer from severe malnutrition And? 17,000 have been orphanedTherefore, they are at risk of exploitation and abuse.

Moreover, there are many who have suffered serious injuries and even loss of limbsconditions that could be fatal given the critical situation of the healthcare system in Gaza. “If they had been in a normal place, where there was a normal hospital, a hospital equipped with the necessary medical supplies and equipment, they could have been saved,” he argued.

For all these reasons, the Lebanese woman has asked for an immediate ceasefire and for the involvement of the international community so that the necessary aid reaches the children of Gaza who need it.
